COMMUNITY
This is the best resource for staying in the know.
Dear GLOBE Community, 

The GLOBE Academy's new website is finally here! Head on over and take a look at our updated online profile and check back often for all the information you need.

In June, Governor Brian P. Kemp and State School Superintendent Richard Woods of the Georgia Department of Education issued a joint statement that Georgia will submit a waiver request to the U.S. Department of Education for the suspension of high-stakes testing and accountability for the 2020-2021 school year - specifically the 2020-2021 Georgia Milestones assessments and the College and Career Readiness Index ( CCRPI ) and the report card (school and district rating systems), in order to allow schools to focus on the remediation, growth and safety of students as they return to full instruction this fall.

See Georgia's Proposed Waiver Request to the United States Department of Education.

Public comment and feedback is a requirement of the process to request a federal waiver. Please take a few moments to provide your input regarding Georgia seeking a waiver from mandatory assessment and accountability requirements for the 2020-2021 school year.

This survey will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, July 10 .

We appreciate your input.
GLOBE Reopening Plan *UPDATE*
Dear parents, 

It is important to me that we continue to communicate with you regarding our reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year. I sincerely appreciate the patience of our community towards our school leaders and me, as the dynamics relative to COVID-19 and school reopening continue to evolve. This email serves as an update to share actions that GLOBE has taken to date and next steps in our planning. 

As many of you know, the Georgia Department of Education in partnership with the Georgia Department of Public Health has developed guidance to support districts and communities in determining their plans and strategies for reopening schools.This framework to re-opening outlines the complexity and decisions that schools and districts will need to consider. I encourage you all to review this information. The framework outlines the need for schools to have a 100% digital/distance learning model if the pandemic becomes more severe; to have a 100% in-person model if disease spread is low to none; and to have a hybrid (digital and in-person model) when disease spread is minimal to moderate.
